Taiga, the pioneering Canadian manufacturer of electric snowmobiles, wasn’t satisfied providing sporting adventures on only 30% of the earth’s surface. Its Orca Electric PWC (starting at $17,490), the first-ever mass-produced personal watercraft of its kind, glides through the water without all the noise—and pollution—emitted by gas-powered jet skis. (The Orca operates at about 72 decibels, whereas old-school jet skis can exceed 90 decibels.) Taiga designed Orca’s battery to withstand high humidity and steady slams against waves within a sealed unit (which in turn is in a sealed hull). It’s not cheap—especially if you spring for the top-of-the-line carbon hull model—but might help you stay on good terms with your lakefront neighbors.
